    Keep you glass top/lights clean, keep the water topped off, make sure your skimmer is running efficiantly.

    I am sure others will add some more tips.

    +1 Be careful, do research, have a great skimmer, do research. . . Vodka was my "dose" of choice in my 35 gallon, but I have been researching about other carbon sources lately. Here is a great web page about vodka dosing: Vodka Dosing
    Hope this helps!

    For me it's been consistency with everything I do tank related. From WC to testing to feeding. Patients is a virtue. If it isn't broke why fix it? Learn to leave good enough alone
